BIO910_1

BIOCAT - Enzyme Kinetics

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


<p>The course covers essential and advanced aspects of enzyme kinetics that can be applied to the PhD work.&nbsp;</p>

Learning outcome

<p>The candidate will, upon completion of the course, be able to (i) design and test experimental assays to determine/estimate the essential characteristics/parameters for one or several multi substrate enzymatic processes, (ii) design mechanisms and test then by means of mathematical modelling (computational methods and sensitivity analysis), (iii) have a understandig for environmental and regulational factors that has an impact on simple and composed enzymatic processes.&nbsp;</p>
